Town authorities in the Ísafjörður swimming pool have decided to take signs downs stipulating that guests should wear a bathing suit to the Finnish sauna. This action was taken after a letter of protest from Finnish sauna lovers, seven of them Finnish. The sauna is a separate sex sauna. 

"I can't speak for the others who signed the letter of protest," said author Eiriíkur Örn Norðdahl on the town's decision. "But I hope the Finns will forgive us now that we've turned away from the wide path of insanity back to the more difficult pathway of common sense."
